This is a good idea I don't want my guests putting pictures up on Facebook till maybe the day after Seem harsh but if people wanted to see my wedding then they need to be there with us. Most of my so called friends are only noisy anyway

Holy cow this article is blowing my mind! I NEVER thought about any of this before, but everthing said is so true!  I'm going to get my FI to read this for sure.

 

And I am also loving the idea of asking people not to post wedding pictures on Facebook until we get back. We are staying an extra week after the wedding as our honeymoon, so we get back a week later than everyone else. I was imagining all the pictures that everyone would post, all the comments and "tags", and that's great, because they are back from their vacation and eager to share...however it was our wedding day and posting the pics before we even get to look at them and having Facebook land seeing them before us does make me sad. I am re-thinking all of this!

Unplugged ceremony but not reception. We will however have a "no FB posting" rule until the trip is over. While our pages are marked private it's never a good idea to post when you're on vacation because you're advertising you are not at home!

Yes good point, it's never a good idea to advertise you're on vacation because that screams "my house is vacant!"

 

We have decided to let our guests take pictures if they want, but are reminding them to remain in their seats, and be mindful of our photographer and the shots he is trying to take. I didn't want to limit people from taking their own pictures, because they might catch a moment or an angle that our photographer misses (the photographer doesn't have a second shooter) :( I think this will be ok, our group is small, family and close friends, I think they will understand.

It sounds a little controlling, I would just ask them to stay out of the professionals way, but I wouldn't forbid them from posting stuff! That's a bit harsh!

im doing the unplugged wedding!  I saw the same article and love it.  I posted it on my wedding website.

 

part of the reason is my fiancé's family is camera crazy then they don't share the pictures with us!  My fi's mom took pics at my daughter 1st bday while we were singing... we obviously didn't take pics bc we were enjoying the moment.  I asked several times for the pics and 8 months later...still don't have a single pic of that important moment in my daughters life. 

 

We will not have another situation like that.  plus, im not going to play the posing game while family plays photographer.  We are paying an amazing photographer and will have a cd with the rights to print and distribute the pics.  everyone will have their pics taken and the photos will be shared.
